PAUL Hollywood’s young lover is staying at his new love nest — as it emerged her pet name for him is Cake Cake.

The Bake Off host, 52, and Summer Monteys-Fullam — 30 years his junior — have been spotted at a secluded cottage he is renting.

Sources say Summer has stayed there,and been seen carrying in her personal items.

It follows their romantic break to Mauritius, where they made waves on a boat trip — the first time they’ve been pictured together.

Instagram pics, which surfaced while they were on the break, showed Summer in a red swimsuit emblazoned with Cake Cake.

And we can reveal it is a declaration of her devotion for Paul.

A source explained:“In their early days together, she had his number saved in her phone as Cake Cake which is her nickname for him.”

The source added: “Like millions of other women, Summer is in love with Paul’s baby blue eyes.

“She says she loves how he makes her feel.

“Everyone is watching to see how long it lasts.”

The Sun on Sunday told last week how Paul secretly whisked Summer to the Indian Ocean paradise isle after she first flew to the US.

On the boat trip Summer wore tight-fitting denim shorts and a swimsuit while Paul relaxed in shades and an orange T-shirt.

They were later seen returning to the public beach at the £1,000-a-night Four Seasons Hotel.

Their luxury villa at the resort boasted a plunge pool.

The pair dined privately most nights, keen not to draw attention to themselves.

They flew back to Heathrow together but were careful to exit the terminal separately a few minutes apart.

Summer was spotted talking excitedly into her phone.

Paul has tried keeping the romance a secret by living in rural obscurity following his marriage split.

His £300,000 rented cottage in Kent is tucked away behind gates and accessible only by a single-track road.

Paul’s only neighbour is his landlord whose manor and stables are on the same parcel of land.

Photos taken last week show Hollywood enjoying an afternoon spin in his blue £200,000 Lamborghini Huracan.

The flash motor is the latest addition to his fleet which includes a Rolls-Royce and Aston Martin.

The source added: “Paul is apparently very caring and attentive when they are together.

“There is a sense of adventure for Summer because of all his fast cars.

“But she is less enthused by Paul’s motorbikes — she just isn’t the biker type.

“She owns horses so it’s a dream for her to be on a farm with stables.

“There isn’t a day when she isn’t out galloping the countryside.”

Before meeting Paul, Summer lived with her parents a short stroll from the Duke William Pub where she worked in picturesque Ickham, Kent.

It is understood her mum and stepdad, who is the same age as Paul, have met the telly star and given their blessing for the relationship to continue despite the age gap.

News of the rural hideaway will further devastate Paul’s ex-wife Alexandra, 53, who is caring for their 16-year-old son Josh a few miles away in the £1.5million home they bought before the break-up.

Some think Paul is keen to keep his relationship with Summer low-key while the dust settles on his £5million divorce.

The couple announced they were calling it quits last year after 20 years of marriage.

Paul met Summer just before the split when she had her job pulling pints in the Duke William.

Rumours of their closeness swept the village after the pair were noticed sharing private moments in a cosy nook while she cleared glasses.

Sources say the relationship took off following his marriage split, though Paul’s PR machine denied they were dating back in November.

The Sun on Sunday can reveal Paul is relieved Summer has now quit her bar job after he got a ribbing from colleagues.

A source said: “Paul used to moan because men were always trying to chat her up.

“Obviously, it was part of her job to talk to the customers and he had no control over that.

“But now people are wondering why they still need to sneak around and hide everything?

“He is obviously grateful to have a beautiful young girl paying him all this attention.

“But why doesn’t he just come out and declare his love for her?”

Paul is the only Bake Off star to stick by the show after it switched from BBC to Channel 4.

He is believed to earn £400,000 a year to host alongside Sandi Toksvig, Noel Fielding and Prue Leith.

Summer has previously praised Paul for turning her “from a girl into a woman”.

In a now-deleted Instagram post on New Year’s Eve she wrote: “I can only thank the people that are close to me.

“Including my amazing boyfriend.

Ex in-aw: ‘Fling will end in tears’

The brother of Paul’s estranged wife Alex has dismissed his romance with Summer saying: “I’m sure it will all end in tears.”

Simon Moores’ comments to the Daily Mail suggest the break-up has turned nasty.

The Hollywoods appeared to have ended their 20-year union amicably in November.

They had patched up after he admitted cheating on her with US TV chef Marcela Valladolid in 2013.

But insiders claim Alex is furious at him for dating someone so young.

Paul first met barmaid Summer in 2017 after arranging a birthday party for Alex at their local pub.

They grew close after his marriage ended.

Paul Hollywood sorry for ‘thoughtless’ diabetes joke on Bake Off

Image caption Paul Hollywood said one contestant’s bake looked like “diabetes on a plate”

Paul Hollywood has apologised for a “thoughtless” joke about diabetes made on The Great British Bake Off.

Some fans of the Channel 4 show took to social media to voice their upset when the judge made the comment about one contestant’s bake.

When commenting on the sticky creation, Hollywood said it looked like “diabetes on a plate”.

He later went to Instagram to apologise, saying he had “meant no harm”.

Tuesday night’s episode was patisserie week and also the show’s semi-final.

A sweet treat, Chelsea buns … a remark re:- diabetes I made on tonight’s show was thoughtless and I meant no harm, as both my grandad and my own mother suffer/ suffered from diabetes … apologies X

A post shared by Paul Hollywood (@paul.hollywood) on Oct 22, 2019 at 3:02pm PDT

End of Instagram post by paul.hollywood

Misunderstanding about the causes of diabetes comes from the fact that there are two very different types.

Fans complained about the remark because they believed it showed Hollywood to be “uneducated” about the condition, claiming it reinforced false beliefs that it comes from eating too much sugar.

Diabetes

There are two main types of diabetes:

  • Type 1 – where the pancreas does not produce any insulin
  • Type 2 – where the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or the body’s cells do not react to insulin

Type 1 diabetes can develop at any age, but usually appears before the age of 40, particularly in childhood.

About 10% of all diabetes is type 1, but it is the most common type of childhood diabetes, so it is sometimes called juvenile diabetes or early onset diabetes

Type 2 diabetes tends to develop later in life and is linked to lifestyle and being overweight.

Source: NHS Choices

Viewers of the show were keen to set Hollywood straight, with various tweets and comments objecting to his comment.

An NHS consultant also said he’d be willing to talk Hollywood through the facts about diabetes, type 1 and 2.

There are now three contestants left to battle for this year’s Bake Off crown, with the final taking place next week.

BAKE Off star Paul Hollywood is livid after scammers stole his pictures and asked fans for nude pics.

The 53-year-old has been left horrified to discover Nigerian fraudsters have been using his images to try and con money out of lonely single women on Facebook.

Going by the name of Paul J Hollywood, the crooks use fake profiles to ask for money and even nude pictures.

Paul wrote to fans online in a bid to warn them of the scam: “This is my only Facebook account and any other account is nothing to do with me. “Report any pages that you think might be fake.”

The star – who split from girlfriend Summer Monteys-Fullam earlier this year – received close to 300 replies from his followers, with some of them revealing they had been contacted by the fraudsters.

One of these women was Emma Norris, 53, who told the Sunday People: “This imposter messaged me and I was stunned that he was asking to meet up,” said Emma.

“For a split second I thought that Paul could actually be interested. Then I thought wake up this can’t be for real.“I was so close to meeting him first for coffee in a public place. I felt vulnerable that I was taken in by him.

“Women need to be informed about their vulnerabilities using social media. Having been so close to something like this it has opened my eyes.”

Paul’s spokesperson confirmed to the publication the fake accounts have now been closed down on Facebook.

They’ve since buried the hatchet after he allowed Summer to collect her belongings from his place.

Are We Allowed To Be Annoyed With Paul Hollywood For Dating A Younger Woman?

Summer Monteys-Fullam is the girlfriend of Bake Off’s Paul Hollywood and people aren’t happy about it. Why? Because, in a classic iteration of the ‘older man meets younger woman and leaves his wife’ genre, she is 22 and he is 52, making him 30 years her senior.

The tabloid press has unearthed a now deleted Instagram post from Monteys-Fullam’s account in which she thanks her ‘amazing boyfriend’ Hollywood. “You have turned me from a girl to a woman’ she wrote, before adding ‘and to a house woman’ which she then punctuated with a laughing emoji.

The pair are reported to have begun dating last year after he and his wife of 20 years parted ways. It is well documented that he had previously cheated on her with his US Bake Off co-star Marcela Valladolid. Hollywood is alleged to have met Summer while she was working in a pub where, wait for it, his wife was celebrating her birthday.

On social media, the whole thing was described as ‘grim’ by one user, another said ‘the power imbalance’ of Hollywood and Monteys-Fullam’s relationship was ‘seriously gross’ and somebody else wrote ‘OMG this is peak dating one of your dad’s friends from the cycling club’.

You may dislike Hollywood because he followed the Bake Off money to Channel 4 as opposed to ‘doing the right thing’ along with his original co-stars but he hasn’t actually done anything wrong here, not legally anyway. The older man/younger woman conundrum may be hackneyed, cringeworthy and, even, seem unsavoury (sorry), but, it is worth noting that often, as in this case, it involves two consenting adults. Your ick-ometer might go wild as you read about how Hollywood scoped Summer out while at a party with his wife, there is no law against dating somebody younger than you. Indeed, it’s entirely possible that Hollywood is just Summer’s one true dad or shag and we should all respect that.

The mythologising of older men is at once frustrating and intriguing in equal measure: they’re often referred to as ‘silver foxes’ and ‘dad or shags’. An age gap can be good, it can be bad and it can be downright creepy. A young woman dating an older man is often romanticised but it can be very, very problematic too – take Lynn Barber’s story as told in An Education, for instance.

So, what is it about the Hollywood scenario that has irked people so much? The cliché of a midlife crisis aged man buying a sports car and/or courting younger women certainly betrays a serious lack of original thought. Imagine, for a moment, that Hollywood had gone off to spend some time in an Ashram to realign himself as he enters the second half of his life? That would, at least, have been a bit imaginative. Clichés are annoying because of their painful predictability.

More than this, it is undeniable that there is a power imbalance whenever a wealthy older man is involved with a younger woman without similar means of her own. This is something that Monica Lewinsky has reflected on at length in relation to her encounters with Bill Clinton, reframing them through the lens of #MeToo. Hollywood’s case is not helped by the fact that Monteys-Fullam has credited him with turning her ‘from a girl to a woman’ and not just any sort of woman, ‘a house woman’ no less. Maybe that’s one of those indecipherable cutesy private couple jokes or, perhaps, she really does mean that he has, quite literally, turned her into a fully-fledged house wife, we’ll never know. Either way, she is certainly not unhappy and her Instagram post is testament to that. Hollywood is no Clinton and Summer has given no indication that she is anything other than consenting and happy in her relationship.

Gandalf from The Lord of The Rings

Perhaps Hollywood, the great villain of TV cookery shows, has something in common with the most hated man in Western democracy – Donald Trump? Trump is 24 years older than his current wife, Melania. Indeed, every time he has married his new wife has been younger than the last. Many people find it hard to believe that Melania could actually love Trump which, of course, is not helped by the fact that she generally looks very uncomfortable. However, as with Summer, she has given the world no indication that she is in her relationship because of anything other than her own free will. Whenever an ageing man – be he a celebrity baker or a politician – partners with a younger woman it’s frustrating because it reinforces the fact that we live in a world where male privilege rules to the extent that there is still a pervasive narrative that women over the age of 40 are ‘on the shelf’ while men can do pretty much whatever they like.

Indeed, only yesterday a study was published in the journal PsyArXiv which found that older heterosexual men like older women but they would still prefer to be in a relationship with a younger one. The research found that the youngest age of prospective female partner that a man would consider remains the same – a woman in her 20s – no matter how old a man gets. In essence, he just expands his range as he ages. This, said one of the study’s lead authors, is because ‘natural selection has probably shaped men’s sexual strategies to include a particular interest in highly fertile, young women’. However, it’s worth pointing out that this study actually confounds the idea that older men are only interested in younger women.

Professor Madeleine Fugere is the author of The Social Psychology of Attraction and Romantic Relationships. She told The Debrief that her ‘gut feeling’ is that ‘we become uncomfortable when the age difference starts to resemble that which would occur between a father and daughter’ and all that implies. However, she also pointed out that the reasons for this ‘could also be evolutionary in nature, it may be that if the age difference between a younger woman and an older man is too great, the man may not be able to help care for potential offspring over the long term’.

As a teaching psychologist, Fuegere noted that when she spoke to her students about this issue ‘they felt that life stage rather than age might be important; so if women are at a younger age (for example, college students) comfort with a ten year age difference might be reduced because an 18 year old and a 28 year old might at different life stages, whereas the difference between a 40 year old and a 50 year old might not cause so much discomfort because those individuals are likely at more similar life stages’.

Fugere also told The Debrief that there is scientific evidence which suggests that ‘dad or shag’, whereby younger women find older man inexplicably attractive, is both a psychological and evolutionary phenomenon and not just a cultural cliché.

‘The research in this area shows that not only are younger women attracted to older men, but older men are attracted to younger women, a convenient situation for heterosexual couples’ she said. ‘When we ask men and women what aged partner they would prefer, men tend to say that they would like a female partner who is a few years younger and women tend to say that they would like a male partner who is a few years older. This preference exists cross-culturally which suggests that it is nearly universal’. Professor Fugere pointed out that this phenomenon persists throughout our lives, as men age they prefer even younger partners while as women age they continue to prefer older partners until around the age of 70.

In evolutionary terms, Professor Fugere said that for men it is, simply, about ‘ensuring that a prospective partner is fertile’ while women consider the resources an older man might have ‘such as income’. ‘An older partner may be in a better position to provide stability, he may also be more mature which a woman might prefer’, she explained.

We portray older men as more romantic, wiser and kinder. Obviously, this is completely flawed because age doesn’t always prevent you from being a terrible person. It would be reasonable for you to feel that Hollywood is ‘sleazy’ or ‘gross’, but that would be your subjective opinion. Like it or not, there is an entire subsection of erotic fiction on Amazon devoted to the ‘Daddy Complex’ which contains titles such as ‘Her Mother’s Boss’ and ‘Her Guardian Neighbour’. Whether the primary consumers of this genre are older men or younger women is up for discussion.

And so, while Hollywood may be on sound legal ground he has undoubtedly stepped on one of a patch of societal moral quicksand. Nobody likes it when a man ‘trades his wife in’ for a younger model as though she is a car. Paul Hollywood has opened up an age-old debate: it might be a cliché, but, regardless of whether older men go for younger women because of nature or nurture, is it sexist for them to do so?
